I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where ; For who has sight so keen and strong That it can follow the flight of song? Long, long afterwards, in an oak, I found the arrow, still unbroke ; And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend." yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii^ THE ARROW VOLUME I Published by the Class of 1920 Woman's College of Due West DUE WEST, S.

Swift as the ra)'s of the morning The beams shine out from afar. A message of truth and of wisdom, A thought cradled long in our hearts, Into the night of our dreaming The flash of an Arrow darts. Long had our dreams been troubled By longings, vague, unclear, Long had we hoped and struggled But the path was dark and drear. As a gazer in a crystal We had seen our world go by With naught to keep in our memory The passing pageantry. Our halls are old with story Of noble deeds and bright, There's no blot on seal or charter 'Tis a record shining white. But these deeds are flickering shadows, Like the firelight on the wall. Should we say to the myriads after — You too are shadows, all ? But love in her infinite wisdom Will always point the way ; The darkness passed in a moment — We saw the dawn of the day. There's no shadow now in the crystal ; The gazer writes with a smile. Secure in the thought that the shadows Shall be real in the after-while. The realms of truth and wisdom Are limitless everj'where, And an arrow now carries our message, Wings its happy way thru the air A fire-tipped, golden-winged arrow Carries the song of our hearts — May it bring to \ou joy and beauty As into your life it darts.

"Let us then he ivhat lue are, and speak nvhat ive think, and in all things keep ourselves loyal to truth and to the sacred professions of friend- ship." We think we have in Elizabeth the miss- ing link. We find in her innumerable qualities which the rest of us lack. That Elizabeth is a dependable sort of person is shown bj' the confidence placed in her when she was elected President of our Se- nior Class. She makes her decisions quick- ly and abides by them at all times. Dur- ing her sojourn in college she has made a splendid record in all her work. To say that appearances are deceiving does not be- gin to express it! The majority of girls at W. C. believe Elizabeth to be a saint. Only her most intimate friends know her as she really is, and they know her to be anything but a saint. Perhaps she is a little dignified, but she is a jolly good companion.

"Those about her, from her shall read the per- fect ivays of honor." Pearl came to us from "sunny Tennes- see," in the fall of '17. Before many months had passed we recognized in Pearl the qualities of a good, all-round college girl. Notwithstanding the fact that she has excelled in her studies, she has not special- ized in class-room work alone, for her work in society has been equally good. Then, too, we can't forget the fact that when a soiree is given, we find Pearl there, and in her Senior year the class was surprised to find her a member of the class basketball team, reminding us again of the fact though slow. Pearl is sure. By her loyalty and "stickability," Pearl has won the admira- tion of both students of both students and faculty, and we each wish well for this representative of Tennessee. A.B.

"To remain in nature alnvays siueet and simple and humble, and therefore strong." We now introduce you to Wilmot, the dignified member of the class of 1920. But she is not always quite so dignified as she looks, for even Wilmot indulges in such frivolities as going up street on Friday aft- ernoon just to buy chocolates, and gives much time and thought to her favorite col- or.^, "Garnet" and White. However, Wil- mot is known best for her thorough, con- scientious, able work in the class room, literary society and Y. W. C. A. She has given much time to the study of expression, and the beautiful stories she tells, in a man- ner her very own, are always in demand. To see her is to note her simplicity, and to is to feel her sincerity. Truly Wilmot's simplicity and quiet strength of will be long remembered by those of us who have known her best at D. W. A.B.

"Oh she stands high in all the people's hearts." Ruth is a girl recognized through the whole college as a big-hearted Christian character, radiating good cheer and moral soundness. So far as any one knows she has not missed "Morning Watch" during her four years here as a student. The stand that she has taken in Y. W. C. A., in her class, in Society, on the Annual Staff, and in all phases of college activities, tes- tifies that she is a prodigious worker. Fresh- men look upon her as an old friend and come to her with their troubles. Ruth never spends her time in idleness on the campus for she is always too busy for that. Her friendliness with everyone has reaped an abundant harvest and we dare say there isn't a girl in school who has as many friends. A.B. Degree Member of the Y. W. C. A.

Never doubted clouds ivould break, Never dreamed, though right luere ivorsted, JVrong ivould triumph." Lila is truly a leader. Her ability, en- enthusiasm, determination and strong faith in God and man peculiarly fit her for this. For the Y. W. C. A. she has labored un- tiringly. For Castalia also she has been a loyal worker, and here as early as her Freshman year, she proved by winning the public debate, her skill and joy in argu- ment. None of us has ever had a chance since then to doubt it. On the basketball field she fights for the game with the same determination. In spite of her many other interests she has not slighted her literarj work, and has also given much time to the study of art. Lila is to be a Medical Mis- and with her strength of mind and character we know that she has much to this work. A. B. Degree. Member of Y. W. C. A. Member of Castalian Society.

The joyous, the sad, the homesick, the troubled, all come to Rose for sympathy and encouragement. In the Y. W. C. A., at the Soiree, in Society, in class room, on the basket-ball field, her enthusiasm never wanes. The light from her left hand some- times causes her to wander into dreamland, but soon she is brought to earth again by the approach of a Freshman, or the call of a teacher. Rose is a good student, but she can not understand why any nice woman would care to teach Chemistry. In spite of this fact she is a true friend, a loyal member of her class, and an all-round col- lege girl. A. B. Degree. Member of Y. W. C. A. Member of Castalian Society. Member of Cabinet '17-'18.

"You'll alivays find her true and just, A girl lultom all ivill love and trust'"' "February brings the rain," but one Feb- ruary brought into the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Cathcart a beautiful ray of sunshine. "Lib" got "her start" from the schools of her native city, from which she entered this Christian Institution four years ago. Elizabeth is one of Amelia's loyal and active members, also one of her most pop- ular musicians. Her ability to sing and play has delighted many audiences. She has a very fertile mind which is the source of many thoughts full of sense and wit. Be- cause of her lovable disposition and many winning ways, she has made a host of friends. Although she can see no harm in wickets, and sometimes "beats," we can't help predicting for her a great future, filled with success, which we feel sure "Lib" will naturally have. A. B. Degree.

Entered College in 1916. "There is no place like home." Margaret is not a very loquacious mem- ber of our class, but if you observe her rec- ord you will find that she ponders more deeply than she speaks. Her class records are ones to be proud of, especially those in the languages. But invariably first in Mar- garet's mind are thoughts of home. She is a five-day student and no college attraction, not even a soiree, has ever been great enough to induce her to spend a week-end with us. Making wickets is no favorite pastime with Margaret, as she is always engaged in acquainting herself with the Old Masters. Her splendid work in col- lege foreshadows even greater success for her in the literary world. A. B. Degree. Member of Amelian Literary Society. Second Marshal Commencement '18.

The college is indebted to the town of Due West for Grace. 1 might tell you of how accomplished she is, musically or oth- erwise, or I might recount her personal charms. But what's the use? Those of us who know her have found it out long ago, and those who have not met her have missed so much I can never tell the half of it. We are glad to have such a girl as Grace in our class. A. B.

"A friend in need is a friend indeed." "Shug" is a living evidence that there is much in life that cannot be learned from books. Her wit, good nature, and friend- liness have won for her many companions. Her ability in voice and expression is a source of much pleasure to her friends. Due West and the college predict success for this member of the class of 1920. A. B. Degree. Member of Castalian Literary Society. Member of Glee Club '19-'20. Senior Class Poet. Page Thirty-one LAURA HILL, A.B. Nashville, Tenn. Entered College in 1918. "Thy soul ivas like a star and divelt apart." When you first meet Laura, the charac- teristics that impress you are her womanli- ness, courage, frankness and artistic sensi- tiveness that shine in her face and large bright eyes. She is one of the tenderest of girls, but her Scotch reticence keeps her from laying bare her heart in talk. Never- theless at times her patriotic love for her native hills makes her speak of Tennessee with the chivalric enthusiasm of a mediaev- al knight for his lady. In addition to her solidity of character, Laura has one of the keenest and most logical minds of the class. A. B. Degree. Member of Y. W. C. A. Member of Amelian Literary Society.

"What ever the lueather may be," says he, "IV hat ever the iveather may be. It's the songs ye sing, an' the smiles ye ivear That's a-makin' the sun shine everywhere." Mary Belle, best known as "Dot," has sung her way straight into the hearts of us all. It's not just her voice, it's the smile she gives, it's the willingness she expresses, its the joy she gets from it, that makes us call on her so often. It's her trueness that makes us want her as a friend. It's her knack of always being at the right place — whether it's class room, morning watch or committee meeting — at the right time that makes her a valuable member of the class of 1920. And it's her enthusiasm, her promptness, her smiles and her songs that are sure to make success for her in the world outside of D. W. W. C. A. B. Degree. Member of the Y. W. C. A.

Entered College in 1916. "A merry heart, a charming smile, Happy is she all the 'while." Dignified? Yes, apparently so. But look, I pray, into the dancing eyes of the raven-haired maiden and you will see mis- chief lurking there. On Saturday after- noon, when the week's work is over, Sudie turns her face towards Mecca — and her Mecca is Hodges, S. C. Four years ago, she journeyed to Due West, and with the rest of us entered the Freshman class of W. C. True to our expectations, Sudie has made good in her work, and we pre- dict for her a happy, successful future., A. B. Degree. Member of Amelian Literary Society. Senior Marshal of the Amelian Literarv Society Celebration '20. Page Thirty-four LAURA JANE MULLEN, A.B. Huntersville, N. C. Entered College in 1917. "A heart to resolve, a head to contrive, And a hand to execute." Can one believe that the girl who per- forms every task with dignity and selfpos- session of a veteran, and who is as depend- able as the "Rock of Gibraltar," is the "Baby" of the class of 1920? Although quiet and unassuming in manner, we can always be sure of Laura Jane's interest and helpfulness in the class room, as a loyal daughter of Amelia, in Y. W. C. A. and in every line of college work. Her happy smile and ever ready jollity are antidotes for many a troubled temper. A. B. Degree. Member of Amelian Society. Member of Y. W. C. A. Local Editor of The Arrow. Page Thirty-five SARAH PATRICK, A.B. Woodward, S. C. Entered College in 1916. "Common sense is instinct, and enough of it is genius." Sarah is a true type of an all-round col- lege girl. During her four years in col- lege, she has excelled in all forms of ath- letics, has taken an active interest in her society, in Y. W. C. A., and in all of the social activities of the college. Yet she has not let these things interfere with her work. While never a "grind," yet her name is always found near the head of the list in all of her classes. The number of offices that she has held and the number- less friends that she has made all testify to her popularity in the college ciicle. Jolly and carefree, loyal and true, lovely and lovable, is our "Pat." Offices Held. Member Castalian Literary Society. Captain of Freshman Basket Ball Team. Sec. and Treas. Athletic Association '18.

"Potts' zeal and energy ivas shoivn Throughout her college career, And another lue've not knoivn Of more luit or less fear." We remember the fall of 1918 for many interesting things, but for one thing es- pecially. We note that Georgia made a contribution to S. C. by sending one of her best girls to D. W. W C. At that time we knew her as "dignified Bessie," but now we know her as "Potts." Since her ar- rival in Due West she has spent many hours of hard and deep study, of which she seldom ever grows tired. Our depar- ture from her would be unpleasant with- out the relieving assurance that her path is destined to success. We know that whether she leads the quiet home life or business life that she will always cling to the highest ideals. Success must be hers, since she has the grace to win, and heart to hold. A. B.

"She is a ivinsome ivee thing She is a handsome nuee thing She is a bonny laee thing." Due West is fostering a typical south- ern girl in the person of Ruth Pratt. Some- times she is dreaming dreams in the south- ern twilight, at other times with the spirit of a Confederate soldier, she is waging war for woman's suffrage. Oftentimes with her attractive personality she is making merry her friends, especially those of the opposite sex; yet in spite of her friendship with the young men, she is cultivating the acquaint- ance of the old masters. If we know her only in classroom, we might predict for her the professorship of history in some college, yet with the eyes of an old sibyl y^e. see her presiding over a dinner party in her own little home.

"The light of lo-ve, the purity of grace, The mind, the music breathing from her face." For four 3'ears Virginia has been one of the class of 1920, and her loyalty to its principles, her zeal in maintaining its stan- dards, and her devotion to our Alma Mater have won our respect and love. Virginia's record in classwork has been one of the highest throughout her four years with us. As a Society member she is most active, and her rare ability in argumentation wins many debates for her side. In conversa- tion she is quite versatile and entertaining. She is an accomplished singer and a praise- worthy student; a true friend and a well- loved classmate. B.M., A.B. Degrees. Member of Castalian Literary Society.

Westminster, S. C. Entered College in 1916. "Type of the ivise luho soar but never roam, True to the kindred points of Heaven and home." "With eyes that drooped like summer flowers," four years ago "Lil" timidly made her entrance into' College life, like a shy doe that steps from the sheltering forest into the open. Her timidity kept her not from making friends, for who is it that does not love the shyest flowers best? Many a dark hour has she brightened and many a burden lightened by her bright smiles and cheery words. Her ideals are among the highest and by association with her one is taught to lift oneself higher and see things brighter than earthly darkness. She has worked steadily, played occasionally, and enjoyed life always. We know that success and happiness will be hers forever, for "In her face we see the map of honor, truth and lovaltv." A. B.

"Consider, I'm a peer of the realm and I ivill die if I don't talk." Grace does talk, but a good talker implies a good audience. Her opinions are good and are generally accepted. No better com- pliment can be paid Grace than to say that she is one of the best all-round members of the Senior class, as is shown by her splen- did record in the class-room, her work in the Literary Society, the Y. W. C. A., the Glee Club, and on the athletic field. The fact that she was made Editor-in-Chief of D. W. W. C.'s first annual proves her ability and our confidence in her. A. B. Degree. Member of Y.

In all probabiIit\' during the first days of her life, Lilla was like the ordinary run of babies, interesting only to the members of her own family. Perhaps those who knew her best never dreamed that she would one day be a prominent member of the class of 1920 of the D. W. W. C. This has, however, come to pass and the Seniors are proud to claim her among their num- ber. For four years she has enjoyed the triumphs and defeats of the class.

"She is not made to be the admiration of everybody but the happiness of one." Marguerite decided that instead of a mu- sical degree, a matrimonial degree would be more to her taste, so this degree was con- ferred upon her during Christmas of her Senior year. We have never quite forgiven John for taking Marguerite away from us, yet we cannot blame him for we know that our loss was his gain. Altho Marguerite is the smallest member of the class, yet she can often accomplish more than others twice her size. She is known as "Pokey" among her best friends but this name does not suit her in the least, for she is always busy doing something, and what she does she does well. We congratulate Mr. Todd on his selection of a wife, and we all join in wishing Mr. and Mrs. John Todd a happy and successful life. Offices Held. Member Castalian Literary Society.

HE CLASS OF 1920 pauses on the mountain top of graduation to look back over the pathway that it has blazed up the hill side of college educa- tion. Naturally there are some regrets as we come to this day of retro- spection. There are sighs for opportunities missed, for bad records left be- hind, for demerits received ; but there is a feeling of satisfaction also as we think over the past days. This has been a happy and worth while period of our lives. Of the twenty-three who stand together today prior to making their impress on the world that lies beyond, sixteen have trod the four years together. Ruth Boggs, Rose Burns, Sudie Milford, Lila Bonner, Virginia Galloway, Grace Donnald, Ruth Pratt, Margarete Dallas, Lilla Templeton, Sara Patrick, Ivy Boyd, Elizabeth Tribble, Elizabeth Cathcart, Lillian Singleton and Virginia Reid started at the first mile post together. There were others with us in those early days, but as we climbed higher and higher many found the paths of education not to their liking. Some de- serted us to try the path of business life, some the school teachers sphere, and not a few left us for the primrose path of matrimony. But our depleted ranks have been filled time and again by others who have brought praise to our name. Grace Shef- field, Pearl Dale, Laura Hill, Bessie Potts, Mary Belle Hood, Wilmot Whitesides, Laura Jane Mullen and Martha Pressly have joined us as we drew nearer to the top of the hill. The Class of 1920 leaves a composite photograph impressed on the mind of the President and each member of the Faculty of the Woman's College. There will be times of course when our friends and instructors will think of the individual mem- bers of this class. More often, however, they will recall the photograph that the class as a whole has left behind. Let me hold one such picture before your eyes and point out to ou the deeds and achievements that have put certain marks of character on the face of our class. As we scrutinize this picture we see that there are lines in the face that indicate strong intellect. There have been few girls in the class of 1920 who have failed to take a strong and active interest in the Academic work. During our Freshman year in college our average record was good. Never can we forget our heroic struggles with English nor the pride with which we received the plauded "Well done" when we had finished our themes that completed our Freshman English course. Each suc- ceeding year has brought its tasks in our literary work and each task has been met and conquered. The Mathematics, French and Sciences have seemed at times insur- mountable obstacles, but all of those difficulties have been overcome. One of the crowning feats of our literary career was the editing, as Seniors, of the first annual from the Woman's College. Nearly all of us have contributed to this, our "brain child." Sometimes in the future, if present indications prove true, we may have a real writer from the Class of '20, for even now we have one, whose pen has aston- ished teacher and pupil. Page Forty-five L Again we see evidences in the picture of our physical strength. It is largely basket ball practice that has put these markings there. During the year 1916-17 the Freshmen went out in large numbers to the basketball court. Excitement was high when, at the close of that Thanksgiving Day, after a battle with the Junior-Senior team and then with the Sophomores, the Freshmen held the loving cup. "Again in the fall of 1917 ours was the winning team. When 1918 came around the black and gold" still carried the day. Naturally the Seniors of '20 hoped to complete its basket ball career by taking the loving cup for the fourth and last year. But our team met its Waterloo on Thanksgiving Day of 1919 and the cup went to our very worthy opponents, the Junior Team. But what are the feats that have marked "artistic temperament" on our picture. First there is musical talent in our class — in fact we might call ourselves a "musical family." There are vocalists, pianists and at one time we even claimed a violinist among our number. No musicals have been given when we did not have some capable representatives from our class. Three of the present Senior class have taken musical degrees, two have received the McBride voice medal and two have had charge of the music of the Y. W. C. A. Then we have an artist in our class. She has taken an active part in this branch of work and one year she received a scholarship in art. Then the class may boast of no little dramatic ability. In the spring of 1918 we, Sopho- mores at that time, staged a play, "Abbu San of Old Japan," which was pronounced far and near a "splendid success." We used the proceeds of this performance to beautify the campus by the erection of the rose arbor which proudly holds the fort near the entrance of the campus. In the scenes from Shakespeare in the Castalian cele- bration and the Indian pageant of the Amelian celebration, many of our girls took part. During the Junior year we had a credible representation in the Patriot pro- gram which the Amelians presented, and the Tennyson pageants staged by the Cas- talians. Nor will the record be broken in our Senior year. The two societies are calling again this year for our girls to assist in the "dramatics." While we see no signs up to this time of a Sara Bernhardt among our classmates, we have no doubts that there will be some lesser lights from among our number. The last marked characteristic of our composite photograph is that it is a face which is concerned not only about material things but has a vision of something higher. The four officers of the Y. W. C. A. for the year 191 8-' 19 were members of the Class of '20. The same thing occurred this year. And we are proud to say that we have two student volunteers who go out from the Woman's College this year with us. The picture of our class that we leave with the Woman's College is one that will never die. Long after the exact events of our college career have faded into the past, the noble and good that we have learned within its walls will be living and growing in the lives of those whom we meet. Virginia Reid, '20. Page Forty-six Senior Class Poem Who says that our work is over When our College days are through, With our girlhood days behind us — The bright days and the blue ? Who says our tasks are finished, Before we yet have tested life? Can we bear the name of victors When we have not met the strife ? Today the gates will close behind us ; We stand where the brook and river meet. This is the burden of our song — We take life's cares and hardships, To live the pure and speak the true, And in the world to right the wrong. As the rose, clean and unspotted, With its whiteness unmarred by sin, Shall we keep our souls all pure God overhead. His love within. We shall strive to lift the darkness To make this earth more than just earth, And of the years of patient training We shall try to prove the worth. Unto you, our dear Alma Mater, We shall live forever true, And show to all the world of men That we have been with you. And from o'er flowing hearts we pray Once more to you — Caress us ! With low bowed heads today we stand Awaiting you to bless us. Virginia Galloway, '20. Fage Forty-seven )enior Class Will RUMMAGE SALE MANY BARGAINS!! ATTENTION FACULTY AND STUDENTS! Be Sure to Come to the Notion Counter, First Floor Lobby, Carnegie Hall, Woman's College. Small things, great things, odd things, precious things, numberless things, arti- cles once the possessions of the Senior Class — All at a bargain price. The no- tion counter will be open May 27, 28, 29. COME ONE, COME ALL RARE BARGAINS SENIOR RUMMAGE SALE GREAT CROWDS VISIT SENIOR NOTION COUNTER MANY PURCHASES OF USEFUL ARTICLES MADE. (Special to the State) May 27, Due West, S. C. There was an exciting scene before the doors of Carnegie Hall at 4 P. M. Long lines of girls and teachers were packed closely against the door, pushing and jostling, trying to get to the front. At length the notion counter was ready. Miss Eliabeth Tribble was general man- ager. Miss Ruth Boggs was Cashier, making her last stand as holder of the money bag. Miss Wilmot Whitesides stood at the wrapping counter, seeing that each article was tested and wrapped in best wishes from the Senior Class. To tell how the crowd swooped down upon the notion counter and how each found the things that suited her or that she needed, would be a hard task for a re- porter with only two eyes, to describe. The first one that found a suitable article was Miss Abernathy. She grabbed the monacle and spectacles tied with yards of black ribbon which former- ly belonged to Miss Bessie Potts. She rushed to Cashier Boggs, but there found that she could not pay for them that day as each article was not to be paid for in greenbacks but in good will to the Senior Class. Miss Sheffield seemed to be searching diligently for something important, but could not find it. Miss Tribble went to her aid. Miss Sheffield said that she was looking for another sister to edu- cate. There was no such article left, buf Miss Tribble showed her a little comet hanging by its tail. Miss Sheffield grabbed this and went off exceedingly happy. Miss Sheffield already had a large deposit at the Cashier's desk. The whole Junior Class seemed to be lugging a bulky package. Some one said that it was the Seniors' luck at basket ball in 1920, but it is not known for cer- tain. It was already paid for in good will from the Juniors, so Cashier Boggs merely nodded as they passed Miss Williard Knight was rejoiced over a purchase she had made. Her package was a pair of high heels which originally belonged to Miss Sarah Pat- rick. There was an odd looking package upon the counter which seemed about to spill. Margaret McCord quietly asked what it was. She found that it was a package of Miss Grace Sheffield's left over words, which she had not had time to use. Miss McCord immediately had this wrapped up for her in best wishes from the Seniors. Miss Grace Cashion purchased Miss Mary Belle Hood's bun- dle of Cousins. Miss Janet Moore claimed Miss Lillian Singleton's position on the Blue Ridge Working Force. Paffe Forty-eiffht Miss Allie Rush bought Miss Grace Donnald's stinging sarcasm, as Miss Rush felt she needed this badlj^ The doors closed promptly and many had to lay their packages down and come back on the morrow. (Special to the State) Due West, S. C, May 28. The great notion sale of the Seniors is progressing exceedingly well. One ar- ticle seemed to be attracting the atten- tion of many who were clamoring for it. Miss Eunice McElvey already had it in her hands, for she found it was a flash- light which formerly belonged to Miss Lillian Clinkscales, the class sponsor. Miss McElvey desired to use it to keep her from kicking boxes down the stairs at night. Miss Dora Elizabeth Pressly inquired if any one had seen Miss Virginia Reid's long tall man anywhere. She soon found that that was not one of Miss Reid's left-overs. Miss Margaret Robinson found the remains of Miss Rose Burns' "Soothing Syrup for Freshman" and immediately purchased it. Miss Katherine Pressly bought Miss Pearle Dale's fondness for "Pelicans." Miss Dale, needing no other Fee, made no charges. A package containing remnants of soirees, wickets, text books, Y. W. C. A. pamphlets, hard work, an old tennis racket, letters, and several remains of Erskine Society pins, all left over from a good time which formally belonged to Miss Lilla Templeton, was purchased by Miss Belle Dale. One package seemed to elude the grasp of many. Miss Analine McCrory final- ly captured it and found ij to be the swiftness of Miss Pearle Dale and Mar- garet Dallas. Miss Emmie Lou Ed- munds got at a bargain price the picture hats of Miss Ruth Pratt. Miss Lois Pressly eagerly grasped Miss Sudie Milford's week-end trips, for she was anxious to go home to see her mother in Oklahoma as often as possible. Miss Margaret Phillips selected Miss Virginia Galloway's ability to slip out of tight places. Miss Elizabeth Mann found the ques- tion box of Miss Laura Jane Mullen as her possession. Miss Essie DuPre' was hunting Miss Elizabeth Cathcart's baseball pitcher, but found he was still in pitch with Miss Cathcart. Miss Olanda McQueen decided to continue Miss Laura Hill's subscription to the Nashville Banner, thinking it might have several love stories in it. A group of Juniors seemed to be ex- amining a package very carefully. It was found to be "The Arrow" which had pierced the purse of the Senior Class. There was much putting of heads to- gether, many perplexed looks, intense whispers, thoughtful weighing of prob- lems. But, finally this countenance changed and with an expression of calm determination, they boldly came to the counter and made the purchase. At this time the doors again closed and the friends went to their homes hap- py over their purchases. May 29. The Great Senior Bargain Counter was closed today as all of the articles were sold out yesterday. The sale was one of the most successful events of the season and was of great benefit to all who made purchases. LiLA Bonner^ '20. Page Forty-nine Class Prophecy Near a gypsy's tent one autumn day, Some dignified Seniors happened to stray. To the eager query as to whom they might be Prompt came the answer, "We're from 'W. C " "Come hither, fair ones," said the gypsy bold, "Come, cross my palm with much bright gold; Deep in the heart of my crystal ball I'll see the future of each and all." "Shall we?" the Seniors in concert cried. "It wouldn't be dignified," Wilmot replied. "Let's throw oH our dignity just for today. And hear what the mystic has to say." Lila Bonner approached her with sparkling eyes. From the ball turned the gypsy, smiling and wise. "I behold you, now, in a fai-away land, Healing the sick with skillful hand." A sweet faced Senior next learned her Fate. "Good things," said the gypsy, "come to those who can wait. As a preacher's wife, you'll charm just the same, And your name, 'Miss Boggs," you'll no longer claim." "Votes for women ! Down with the men ! We'll never submit to the tyrants again ! Laura Jane Mullen, great Suffragette leader. Makes an effective soap box speaker." "Maiden, with downcast, violet eyes. In a spotless kitchen you're making pies!" This prophecy glowed with domestic cheer ; 'Twas welcome to Lillian Singleton's ear. With a scornful look, Bessie Potts came near, And said, "For my future, have no fear." "You'll write a book. Lo ! the title appears. It is, 'Men— Why I Hate Them— The Blessed Old Dears!' " The Gypsy now let her eyes quietly stray To where stood Virginia Galloway. "As for you, my dear child," she said with a smile, "I see you and 'Rube' still riding in style." Paffe Fifty With Auburn cars, and ruby rings, And many, many, lovely things. Your David will supply you. Rose, (No sweeter in the garden grows.)" "A lovely voice floats out on the air ; The listening people forget all care. They love the songs, — it does them good To hear the name of Mary Belle Hood." "Two charming maidens with consummate art. Ensnare, by their acting, the public's heart; Pearle Dale, in pinafores, childish and meek, Martha Pressly, a goddess, in costume Greek." Miss Pratt and Miss Cathcart must now draw near. Approach ! Approach ! There's no cause for fear. In future years you'll win your fame, — You'll count all the stars, and give each a new name." Then Wilmot approached with indifferent tread. "The fields are 'White,' " the mystic said. "You are chosen, young lady, to 'Garner' in The sheaves of good from the fields of sin." "As the dignified dean of a Woman's College, Grace Sheffield will wisely employ her knowledge. As professor of Chemistry in the same place of learning Elizabeth Tribble is for 'higher' things yearning." "Within the depths of my crystal sphere. There appears a picture, bright and clear. Grace Donnald makes a splendid nurse. Her patients grow better instead of worse !" ' "In a far-away city, a sign I see, — 'Aesthetic Dancing Taught Quite Free!' Ma'm'selle Sudie Milford, straight from 'Paree,' Will teach you the steps, and to say, 'Oui, Oui.' " "An aeroplane huge now sails into view. And the driver, maiden, appears to be — you!" Lilla Templeton uttered a cry of despair, "Anything rather than riding through air!" Page Fifty-one Next came Sarah Patrick with brow serene. "Your future, child, is plainly seen. The greatest mission of your happy life Is to make the right man a charming wife." Cried Virginia Reid, of the golden hair, "O, give me a fortune both true and fair." "A Ph.D. I see you'll be. And teach the girls of W. C." "As a book agent you will win your fame." This to our friend, Laura Hill by name. With that gentle voice and pleading look, You'll make folks buy 'most any kind of book." "From the Senior Class you will soon depart, I can pierce the secrets of your inmost heart." Marguerite heard this, now isn't it odd She has changed her name to "Mrs. John Todd"? Of all the fortunes within my ball. Yours, Margaret Dallas, is saddest of all. A prim old maid, thus Fate has decreed. And a 'Miss' in your epitaph, too, I read!" As a runner victorious, weary of chase. Slow sank the sun to his resting place. Said the seer, "One moment, ere you depart. Hear the words that come from the depths of my heart." "Behold, Class of '20, the heavens fair. And the glowing colors painted there! But the Artist Great did not deem it wise. To etch human lives on the aureate skies Life is the canvas, for each of you, one. Wield well the brush 'till the task is done ; That your picture, in many a tint and shade. May be rich with a beauty that never shall fade." Margaret Dallas. '20.

C Page Fifty-six At J unior Harb aroor HE Ocean of Life is broad, deep and unknown ; but adjoining it is the attrac- tive Sea of College Life. On this little sea are many different fleets of ships, striving to learn the ways of the sea and to be fitted for the voyage on the Ocean of Life. Blown from the four corners of the earth our poor wind-tossed band of ships gathered in the fall of 1917 at D. W. W. C. and set sail, with the faculty and President as crew and pilot, for Freshman Harbor. Unaccustomed to the rules and regulations of a fleet, each ship was at first anxious to leave the band and return to the port from which it had sailed alone, but as time went on, the benefits and pleasures derived from traveling with the fleet became more evident and each ship was content to be a part of the whole. In this way, we sailed together, narrowly escaping many shipwrecks thru the rough Sea of Freshman Life and safely reached the harbor. After a short rest, in which each ship returned to its home port, the fleet again assembled and started on the voyage through Sophomore Bay. Nearly all the fleet was back in place and a few new ships joined the band. The journey here was made in more peaceful and easy-flowing waters because the fleet was more accustomed to laws. In friendly contests with other fleets our squadron many times won the day. And now we have reached Junior Harbor, on our way to Senior Port. In this, our third voyage together, our journey has been characterized by loyalty to each other and to our fellow fleets. We are looking forward eagerly to the last, the culminating voyage together — the voyage through the Strait of Senior Life. When the journey starts next year we hope our fleet will be intact and we extend a hearty welcome to any ships who desire to join us.

Paffe Fifty-nine Page Sixty Sopnomore Class History N the fall of 1918 there came to D. W. W. C. about seventy-five representa- tives of four states, who wished to get all that could be obtained in the Freshman Class. We seemed a motley crew, all sizes and shapes, and were overpowered by the stern discipline of the Faculty and by the curious glances of those Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores. However, we soon overcame our timidity enough to enter the library without knocking and to feel quite at home while in there. Although our work was interrupted by the "Flu," we managed by hard work to cover the ground required of us. Our class made a good showing in athletics. We had three representatives on the college team last year. Having lived through nine long months we left in June, looking forward to the reopening of college when we would be all important Sophomores. Away from the rush and noise of college, far from books and teachers, we spent three short and happy months of pleasure with our home folks. With none of our former timidity and uncertainty, September, 1919, found us again assembled in the old halls. Although our numbers had decreased and we had lost some of our best members, we determined to make good. So adopting, "Let nothing discourage you, never give up," as our motto, we are striving to make W. C. proud of us; and we are looking forward anxiously to that day in June of 1922, when there will go out from this college not only the largest but one of the best classes in her history.

Since that time we have been engaged in that mighty struggle, realizing that the only way to success is by persever- ance and "burning the midnight oil." We, therefore, have diligently applied our fertile brains, which our green heads gracefully contain, to pursuing our journey up that narrow path which leads to a diploma everlasting. Although our soirees have been few and far between, and we have never had the pleasure of enjoying what the old girls call the "Heartfelt Old Time Soiree," Cupid has been faithfully on the job and many of our young and innocent hearts have been pierced by his arrows. The Y. W. C. A. has quite a majority of our class on her roll book, and we are doing our part as well as "Fresh" can do. The societies have meant much for our literary training, and we see in our class valuable material for debating and reading, and also much musical talent. Our Freshman Basket Ball Team is considered a splendid team by all the classes - — even by our sister class, the Juniors. "We have reached the foothills, and the mountains are beyond." We realize that the mountains are indeed beyond, but each Freshman is determined to do her best, and make D. W. W. C. proud of her Class of '23. Margaret Robinson, Historian.

Powell Page Seventy Page Seventy-one Our First President Rev. J. I. Bonner Page Seventy-tivo Woman's College of Due West T was in the year 1859 that a few men first conceived the idea of establishing a school where young women of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church might receive adequate training under decidedly Christian influence. For our Presbyterian forefathers, intellectual training and spiritual development went hand in hand. In the fall of 1859 during a session of Presbytery at Newberry, S. C, Revs. J. I. Bonner, R. C. Grier, J. C. Galloway pledged five hundred dollars each for this enterprise. Their example had its influence on others and in November of the same year at Due West it was decided that the school in Due West under the charge of Miss McQuerns be taken over and a "female college" established. This was ac- cordingly done. Since the three room building was not competent for the needs of the new school, a seven acre tract, where the college now stands, was purchased and a canvass for money instituted. The work was discouraging; money came in slowly. After a time, however, the corner stone of the brick building, the present Main Build- ing, was laid. In January, 1860, the first session of the College opened with the following fac- ulty: Rev. J. I. Bonner, President, Rev. J. C. Galloway, Miss McQuerens and Miss McBride. The course of study prescribed was a good one and adequate for the needs of the time. But the new College was lacking in equipment. There were only five recitation rooms, these unplastered ; no stairway to the second floor ; one second-hand piano; no library; no laboratory, and no dormitory for the students. Due honor and praise should be given the founders who, in spite of debt and discouragement, stood by and supported the new College. The first Commencement, occurring July 8, 1861, was held in the church; the first graduating class consisted of five young women. It was during Dr. Bonner's administration that the War of Secession which swept away so many of our Southern Colleges was fought. Because of the heavy debt which the Trustees in the impoverished state of the country found themselves unable to pay, it was necessary to change the form of ownership. In 1867 a joint stock com- pany was organized which took over the college, paid the indebtedness, and added some necessary equipment. Dr. Bonner's administration extended over a period of twenty-two years to 1881. This administration cannot be better characterized than by the words of another: "Dr. Bonner was preeminently the man for the hour and at last won out in face of all desperate odds and planted the college on firm grounds." After the death of Dr. Bonner, Professor J. P. Kennedy, who for a number of years had been Professor in Erskine College, was unanimously chosen President. He associated with himself Mrs. K. P. Kennedy and Mrs. L. M. Bonner, both of whom had been connected with the college prior to this. The old church was purchased for a dormitory, thus enabling the college to accommodate a greater number of boarding students. In 1887 when, on account of ill health, it became necessary for Professor Kennedy to give up the work, Mrs. L. M. Bonner was chosen President and served most successfully until 1895. For the four succeeding years Rev. C. E. Todd was President. Although handicapped by disease, Mr. Todd was a man of unbounded energy and aspiration and during his regime notable progress was made. In 1900 Rev. James Boyce assumed control of the college. During this administration the curriculum of the institution was broadened and the standard raised. The Carnegie Dormitory erected in 1908 is a monument to his endeavor, but perhaps Dr. Boyce's Page Seventy-three most far-reaching work was his success in having the college transferred from the con- trol of the stock company to the Synod of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. The institution had been maintained largely by the church ; now it was to be a denom- inational school owned and controlled by the church. It was at the time of this trans- fer in 1904 that the name was changed from Due West Female College to Woman's College of Due West. Of Dr. and Mrs. Richard Lee Robinson, now President and Dean, respec- tively, of the college, it is not necessary to speak. All the Associate Reformed Pres- byterians, indeed many in other denominations, know of their work. With no en- dowment, little financial aid from the denomination, with the continued rise in prices of everything, they have labored cheerfully and indefatigably. New departments have been added and the standard raised to satisfy requirements of the Association of Southern Colleges. The burden of the administrative work has been theirs ; our ap- preciation and praise should also be theirs. In 1915 the much needed Alumnae Building was ready for use. This, a gift largely of the alumnae of the college, contains the auditorium, practice rooms, music studios and art studios. Quoting Dr. D. G. Phillips, in an address delivered September, 1910: "No arithmetic of earth, eternity alone can reveal the debt our church owes the Woman's College." Struggling for six years against poverty and poor equipment, she has held a place with other splendidly equipped colleges of our land. A list of the names of those connected with the Woman's College, both professors and students, is a list of which any institution might be proud. Among the professors there are: Dr. J. I. Bonner, Professor J. P. Kennedy, Dr. Jas. Boyce, Mrs. L. M. Bonner, Mrs. K. P. Kennedy, Miss McQuerens, Mrs. E. C. Stuart, Miss Mildred C. Watkins, Mrs. W. B. Lindsay, Mrs. Jennie E. Bonner and others not less dear to students of former days. Over one thousand graduates have gone out to every part of our country. A large number have found their work in Egypt, Mexico, Japan, India, China, and Korea. The Woman's College has a record of which she may be proud. It is for the students of today to see that her record is not sullied, her honor not stained. Paffe Seventy-four Page Seventy-fi've EA)entful Dates In the fall of 1859, sixty years ago, at the home of Rev. Jonathan Gallo- way in Newberry County, S. C., three men dreamed a wonderful dream — the founding of a Christian College for girls. Nov. 1, 1859, the people of Due West awoke to find the dream had come true ; the Due West Female College was a reality with Dr. J. I. Bonner at its head. The second Monday of Jannuary, 1860, marked the formal opening of the College. August 7, 1860, the corner stone was laid. July 8, 1861, the first commencement day. The graduating class num- bered five. In October, 1861, Miss Lila Morse, later Mrs. Bonner, began her work in the college as teacher of piano, and for fifty-s:ix years she was intimately con- nected with the college. Amid the general ruins of War, the trustees practically bankrupt, organ- ized a joint stock company in 1867. 1869 marked the beginning of dormitory life in the D. W. F. C. In 1876, the Castalian and Amelian Literary Societies grew out of an over- grown organization. Synod adopted the D. W. F. C. in 1904. 1906 — Carnegie Dormitory, the gift of Adrew Carnegie and friends of the College was completed. In 1909, the name was changed from "D. W. F. C." to "D. W. W. C."

Who does not look back upon the years spent in College and regard them as the brightest pages in Memory's Book! Misspent? Yes, many of them, yet filled with joy and the joy of living. It is a life to be found in no other sphere — the warm friendships, the short lived bitter hatreds, the tears, the smiles, the good times, the differ- ences, the night feasts, the old campus, the many characteristics of the girls and the teachers, the discipline, the broken rules, all abide with the girl forever. Rules were many and rigid under Dr. Bonner's regime ; but a strict observance of them was not impossible. In short they meant strict obedience, strict honesty, and always a lady. A few girls were rewarded each year for keeping the rules. Our amusements? Friday night was nearly always a time of hilarity and socia- bility. A crowd would gather and play "steal partners," occasionally have a Virginia Reel or a Cotillion if any one knew how to "call out." We had plenty of good, wholesome fun. The sight of an elephant anywhere will instantly bring to mind the huge gray one which was accustomed to roam around the college on Friday nights. Its abode was one of the square rooms on the third floor. Its makeup was two girls from Huntersville, one now gone on beyond, the other the dignified wife of a dis- tinguished D.D., two solid gray bed comforts, and a long gray veil. It was indeed life-like : timid Ferrie Grier would faint at sight of it. Sometimes a huge turkey would follow in its wake, provoking more terrified screams, but that was part of the frolic. Once, answering the call to gather on the first floor, we stood mystified till the back door was opened, revealing to us Aunt Harriet and her bridegroom of inky blackness, both wearing snow white gloves! They were married by the President with the girls as witnesses. Uniforms? At the beginning of this decade the winter uniform was light blue (somewhat akin to Alice blue of today) with plain black hat.The first Sabbath in Fage Seventy-se'ven May we donned the summer uniform, pink delaine skirt and white spencer waist; straw hat trimmed with white ribbon and pink flowers, just a spray not bunches of them, and no lace. Woe be unto her who tried to wear the lace on her pretty new hat, sent from home. Our holidays were limited. At Christmas we had one or two days. One soiree, no calls or walks, then we wore the extra dress allowed ! Usually a grand Cantata as given by the school; no girl going home (but they were few) was allowed to have part in it. This generally held the girls. We had one other soiree at the Junior Exhibition in May or else the boys went home with us, then again Wednesday night of commencement. Of course "engagements" for these occasions were made long be- fore by "grapevine telegraph." "Girls will be girls." We generally had half holi- day on Thanksgiving, on March 8, Miss McQuerns' birthday we had extra dinner and half holiday. Then a picnic May 1. All in all we had a good time and I would not exchange my day for the present. Mrs. Fannie Bonner Brownlee^ Class of 1878. Tributes from Alumnae Those of us who saw her beginnings and knew the spirit and ideals of her foun- ders, have watched with pride and interest the growth and development of our Alma Mater. Mrs. Janie Kennedy Brice, Class of 1872. Alma Mater, Mother dear! What noble inspirations and aspirations you give your girls ! You ingraft those personal qualities that make woman a social favorite, namely: refinement, tact, intelli- gence, and sweetness of spirit. To which are added : energy, reliability, and a sense of responsibility in all her work. Coupled with these are: good health, assiduous literary study, religious, social, and ideal culture. Mrs. Sallie Miller Brice, Class of 1877. If one could fancy that there had never been the Woman's College of Due West to exert its wonderful influence, how much poorer would be the world today. Knowing that the Woman's College will live and grow, how much richer will be the world of tomorrow! Mrs. Gussie Hood Blake, Class of 1879. Far back from the street half hidden by the green of the trees stands a red brick building with four stately white columns guarding its entrance. Around this building cluster some of my most treasured memories. As a child I played in its shadow and as a girl I entered its walls as a student ; now as a woman I look back in memory on the men and women who taught there not only facts in literature and science, but ideals of noble womanhood. Mrs. Mary Miller Bigham, Class of 1883. Page Seventy-eight The best way to prove our appreciation of anything is to give it our most loyal support. We have no money to give as we would love to do, but we have given (God's best gift to parents) our daughters. My fourth is in college this year and if I had millions with which to educate her, I would not have her elsewhere. I'm sure the good influence received from the Woman's College means life to our church. Mrs. Janie Wideman Phillips, Class of 1887. "She is mine own, And I as rich in having such a jewel As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl, The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold." Mrs. Zula Brock Sharpe, Class of 1889. Recently, a girl from another college wrote, "There are no Sabbaths here, no spiritual atmosphere." Instantly, my thoughts took me back to dear old Due West, to its peaceful Sabbaths, to the wonderful influence of Mrs. Bonner, President, Miss Watkins and Miss Lillian McDavid, teachers, to the companionship of Macie Steven- son, Mattie Boyce, Fannie Wallace, Kate Neel and Mary Sullivan, all missionary products of those years, who left indelible impressions, then I asked myself the ques- tion: "Why should A. R. P. girls go anywhere else for an education?" Yes, why? Miss Ella Sterling, Class of 1891. I have always loved the Woman's College, I still love her and I always will love her. "Age cannot wither her nor custom stale her infinite variety." Mrs. Agnes Grier Long, Class of 1904. I think of the years spent in the Woman's College as among the best years of my life. As time goes by I look back upon them with increasingly pleasant memory. I prize those years not only for the knowledge gained, but the happy associations they brought. Mrs. Elizabeth Faulkner Lummus. Class of 1907. Three cheers for the present Senior Class! We girls of 1914 are proud of you for having successfully carried through what we attempted and failed — A College Annual. We rejoice to see our college making progress as it ever grows dearer to us. Jean Kennedy, Class of 1914. Though our pearls of memories form but a meager strand, yet the most perfect and precious of all the gems are the sweet and ever lingering memories of thee — our Alma Mater. Virginia Galloway, Class of 1920. Page Seventy-nine Alma Mater Once again we come to thee, Bearing gifts of loyalty, Bowing at thy temple famed. Reverencing thy honored name, May the garnet and the gray, Wave forever and a day. Let no child who bears thy name Cause thy cheek to glow with shame. Thou must fair and fairer grow. As the swift years onward flow, Alma Mater, mother dear. Bless thy daughters gathered here. Born in faith and built in prayer, Thou hast been our father's care. Thou must never, never fail. Nor before a foeman quail, Valiant thou must ever be, Long live D. W. W. C. Mrs. Jennie Grier Moffat, Class of 1883. Page Eighty Page Eighty-one Spring The happy spring at last has come, The flow'rs were dormant lying, The bees have just begun to hum, The wind has ceas'd its sighing. No snowbirds flit from bough to bough O'er meadows brown and sere ; But happy robins calling now, "Say ! Spring at last is here." Beneath the skies so bright and blue The earth buds forth in splendor, And gently beck'ning calls to you — All nature grows more tender. No care the happy maidens know, They pluck the flow'rs of spring, While lightly skipping to and fro. They hear the song-birds sing. The farm boy turns the fertile soil And plants the golden grain. Green tendrils smile amid his toil While waiting sun and rain. For he is bright as flow'rs of May Ne'er in his path meets sorrow, 'Tis he the whole world seeks today, The leader of tomorrow. The God of Nature reigns serene O'er lands of love and peace. No strife to mar the raptured scene Of happiness and ease. P. D., '20. Page Eighty-tvio A Quest of tne Pleiades F the lights had been brighter in the room, as they were not, for good reasons we shall presently learn, we could have seen a very familiar sight to most college girls. There was a burning chafing dish on the table, one girl was dicing bananas for salad, another making mayonnaise, and in fact all things were in preparation for a midnight feast. The scene was a happy though rather quiet one, for of course they must not arouse the sleeping duty teacher and get "caught" with the tragic result of restriction. The remainder of the seven, for there were only seven, who were not engaged in the preparation of the feast were sitting in and around the windows conversing with each other in subdued tones. The group presently turned its attention to the starry heavens. The Pleiades was the first constellation they noticed becaure their club had been named for it, since there were seven girls in the club and seven stars in the constellation. They followed up with Orion, and a tone of merriment filled the air as they gleefully reminded each other of the fanc\' they had woven around this constellation. Orion signified to them, any faculty member who might be on duty at a time of one of their festivities ; for did not Orion seem to be chasing the Pleiades in the heavens? And in truth he was if we are to accept the old legend of his being enamored of them and giving pursuit. Why was Orion not an appropriate name for any one who might try to chase the Pleiades in any of their frolics? Each one of these girls had grown passionately fond of watching these two constellations and applying its legends to their own club, and saying: "Many a night from yonder ivied casement ere I went to rest, Did I look on great Orion, sloping slowly to the west. Many a night I saw the Pleiades, rising through the mellow shade. Glitter like a swarm of fire-flies tangled in a silver braid." The Pleiades had chosen their names from the names of the stars in their constel- lation. The one deemed the fairest was called Maia, for is this not true in the myth? The others had chosen their names from the remaining stars, as they pleased, except that the name Electra was given to the one who was the swiftest in getting out of sight when they heard Orion coming. At length the hot chocolate was ready and everything was served. The already dim candle was blown out since there was really no need for it at this time. The whole group now gathered around the window and talked of any subject that presented itself, — their lessons, lovers, or what not, and very often of Orion when there was the slightest noise in the corridor. "My chocolate isn't sweet enough," said Taygete, the third of the Pleiades. "Please don't light the candle to get any sugar to sweeten it," answered Alcyoni, "for Orion will surely see it." "I can get it for you without a light," chimed in Celaeno, and she accordingly rose and went towards the table to get it. Then all of a sudden : Clatter, clatter, clatter! Rattle, rattle, bang! Would it never stop rolling! She had knocked the lid off the table and made a horrible racket. "O, run for your lives! We are surely caught," cried Sterope and Merope. In less time than it takes to tell it, five of the Pleiades were out of the door, on their way home, and the other two were in bed — shoes, kimona and all — with the Paffe Eighty-three covers pulled over them, and ready to feign a snore should Orion come to see if they had caused the disturbance. Bright stars! Orion was reall}' aroused and rushed into the hall brandishing his sword (being interpreted, the flash light) in his hand and was in hot and close pursuit. The Pleiades broke the tradition of the heavens and fled in opposite directions. They chose wise courses with the exception of Electra. Fleet-footed Electra! The one who had been dubbed Electra had taken the wrong course for once! Orion caught a glimpse of her and pursued with all his might. His gleaming sword and Electra's wildly flying hair, the hair that makes the comet in the constellation, was truly a pic- ture of the Pleiades in the heavens. Down the hall and up the stairs the runner and the chaser went! The poor Pleiad must keep the tradition of never letting Orion catch her. When the Pleiades of old prayed for help in the mad chase, Jupiter helped them by turning them into pigeons and making them a constellation. Likewise, un- happy Electra wished that she were a pigeon, or anything except what she really was. At last she reached the door of her room and dashed in. She knew that Orion was still pursuing and now was her chance to play the mouse instead of the pigeon. She accordingly threw herself upon the floor and rolled under the bed as fast as she could. Electra was congratulating herself upon her escape and upon living true to the tradition of the Pleiades, when, — horror of all horrors! She heard Orion at the door! He entered and, bending over, flashed a light under the bed with his gleaming sword. The tragedy of it was that she was not a mouse that she might scamper away. Now that Orion had caught her Electra remembered that tradition also said that she had turned away to keep from seeing the destruction of Troy. She wondered if . the other Pleiades would turn pale at the sight, as the true Pleiades had at the down- fall of Troy, and if there was not an ill omen in the name of Pleiades. The names of Orion and the Pleiades seemed very fascinating in the flickering candle light at midnight. But in the broad daylight of the next day, called down before the faculty, the stern reality remained that Electra was only a college girl who in her reckless folly had been caught at a midnight feast. Jupiter had failed and had proven a false god to her as he had not been to the Pleiades of the heavens. Orion's dog, Sirius, who is seen trailing behind him in the heavens and who helps him in his chase, set up a loud bow-wow at the faculty meeting, and before it was over Electra was condemned to restriction for a whole month. The Pleiades had really blanched at the sight and did not venture on another midnight escapade for about two weeks. Electra was there and, to fulfill her part or the tradition of the Pleiades, was generally invisible, because she was hidden in the closet for fear of another chase with Orion. She explained that, as Electra ofl old had turned away to keep from seeing the destruction of Troy, she herself had turned away to keep from experiencing her own destruction. Since this quest the Pleiades have proven true to the tradition of Orion never catching them. They still fly before him in the heavens and he pursues. Likewise, the modern Pleiades fly before him in the corridors and he rides a vain quest. M., '20. Page Eighty-four A Perfect Da}) The sun peeps up — the day begins, The earth's cloth'd with a rosy hue; The birds their songs begin to trill, The sky's a beautiful pale blue. The day creeps on — the breeze is warm, A scent of roses fills the air ; A mocking bird trills low sweet notes To fill the world with something rare. The sun sinks low — a rosy glow Pervades the hills and mountains high ; The silent moon looks softly down, "Good-night, God's Blessing," breezes sigh. F. B., '23. Page Eighty-five Our Brother's Keeper MERICA'S history has been one of challenges. "Conquer me!" cried the strange new land to both somber Puritan and gay Cavalier. "Subdue me!" invited the vast wilderness. "Chain me!" taunted each swift-flowing river as it rushed to the sea. "Beware, Paleface, the land is mine!" muttered the sullen and suspicious Indian. Then, just when the land was beginning to come into its own — just when the colonies were feeling the first faint stirrings of the national spirit, England, the mother country, stirred the young nation to bitter and purposeful revolt. The ;oul of America, through the lips of Patrick Henry, sent this ultimatum ringing across the Atlantic: "Give me liberty or give me death!" And on down through the ensuing 3'ears, our land has ever met the challenge, "To arms, America!" fearlessly and courageously. She has ever been secure in the belief that victory is given to those who battle on the side of right. In the year 1914, the flower of American manhood set sail for foreign shores. Why? The challenge had been given, — America was answering. In 1918 the boys began to return, not in defeat, but as conquering heroes. The war was over. Our land had done her bit, as the many graves in Flander's field testify. But with the close of the Great War did our part in world-wide interests cease? Can America now fold her hands and enjoy her marvelous civilization and prosperity? No! Her greatest duty lies before her. At the close of the war our nation found herself occupying a unique position. As the greatest of the "Five Big Powers," she holds the place of counselor and guide to the remaining four: Great Britain, France, Italy and Japan. The period of recon- struction is a dangerous one.The future of the world is at stake. Shall the principles of "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" prevail, or shall humanity sink deeper into the quagmire of despair? America will be the principal determining factor. The great question before her is: "Am I my brothers' keeper?" To her belongs the power to answer as she desires. From Great Britain comes a clarion call for aid in establishing, first and fore- most, a just, lasting, and an all-embracing peace. The end of the war saw the mili- tarism and autocracies of central Europe destroyed beyond our greatest hopes. The whole continent was littered with the debris of disrupted empires. But it still re- mains to be seen whether the faith in which untold numbers of gallant youths died — ■ the faith in a war that was to redeem and elevate mankind — a war that was, possibly, to free the whole world from the terrors of devastation and bloodshed, had an actual foundation upon which to build or whether it was anything more than a beautiful illusion. The Peace Conference sounded the death knell of Prussian Militarism and it tried to make a new map of Europe, based upon the principles of nationality and democracy. The Conference also gave to the world the first working plan for a League of Nations. But when this much was done, the delegates turned their faces homeward, and gave their attention to domestic affairs. What of the infant democracies born during the travail of Europe? What of Russia? Is she safe for Democracy? What of the men who fought for the new world and of the hundreds of thousands who died to establish it? Are we keeping faith with them if we fail to honor the promises made them. These are some of the questions addressed to America by Great Britain. Says Charles McCurdy, a prom- inent Englishman: Page Eighty-six "It will be a tragedj' if the British people and the people of the United States stop thinking about this war and allow their attention to be switched onto domestic politics or industrial problems without first making a concerted effort to get a good peace." One of the greatest difficulties to be met in the establisliing of this peace is that of dealing with those countries that have been subjected to Turkish misrule. By the Covenant of the League of Nations accepted by the Allied Conference on April 28, 1919, the Allied Powers laid down, in no indefinite terms the method by which they proposed to deal with these peoples. Realizing that Armenia and the other downtrodden countries are in no condition at present to help themselves, these nations which were, by reason of their advanced positions in the political world, judged capable to aid these people, to act as manda- tories. The Allied nations of Europe cannot undertake the task alone. It is one that requires vast expenditures of money, time and man power. Great Britain and France will undertake the trusteeship of Syria and Messo- potamia. The future of Constantinople and Armenia are now of supreme importance. The condition of Armenia especially calls for aid. Her people have asked the United States for help. Will humanity be permitted to suffer longer? "Am I my brothers' keeper?" A second of the Great Powers, Italy, presents her plea to America through a rather peculiar channel — that of Italian emigration to the United States. This phe- nomenon of emigration has long been a familiar one and has developed with such a regularity of character that it has come to be regarded as a normal manifestation of the economic life of the two countries. This movement has been momentarily dis- turbed by the Great War. But now the war is over. Italian immigrants have be- gun to come over in increasing numbers. Up until this time both Italy and the Unit- ed States have reserved the right of disciplining this movement in an independent way — Italy with her services upon emigration and America with hers upon immigration. Italy seems to think that the hour has arrived for studying this very important form of relations between the two countries. She hints at a treaty, similar to one she has recently signed with France concerning emigration. "Italy and America who have found themselves associated in the war," says Giu- seppe de Michelis, Italian Commissioner for Emigration, "are destined to an ever closer relationship. Let us take steps so as to give to this social reality the greatest possible weight in the system of the relations between our two governments. It is in the common interest of our two nations." America, what is the answer? The next message comes from the "Land of the Furthest East." Japan tells us that "Peace in the Far East has been, and is, the most urgent wish of all her thinking people." In 1914 when she entered the Great War with her Western Allies, she did so because of loyalty to her obligations and because an enemy (Germany) had a strong- hold in the East. In doing so she cast her lot with them to stand or fall. Japan joined with the victors in making peace, and will stand with them in maintaining this peace whenever it is menaced in violation of the terms of the treaty which she has signed and ratified. Japan sends a message of protest against the way in which that clause in the Peace Treaty concerning the Shantung award was received by the other nations. She pro- tests against the fact that the Japanese Government was said to be a treacherous con- spirator against the world at the moment she signed the treaty. She says that Japan, as one of the five main powers signatory, will keep the faith and abide by the treaty, Page Eighty-seven just as she has always kept the faith with other nations. So the challenge from Japan is : "We have stated the facts, America, concerning our position. Will you accept them as true and believe in our honesty and sincerity?" From the other side of the Atlantic there comes a last call to the American na- tion. This comes from France, as from friend to friend. France and America are the two countries in which, for the first time in modern history, democracy has reached its highest development under the form of a well organized and efficient republican government. They have fought together — they are bound by strong historical ties that have never been broken. During the past war the eonomic ties between the two coun- tries were much strengthened by the enormous amount of business transacted between them. Now that peace has been restored, commerce must be restored on a normal basis. Bcause the equilibrium of trade has been broken by the war, the value of French money has declined in American markets and unless conditions are improved it will be necessary for France to buy from other countries. According to France, there is only one sound solution to the problem of overcoming the difficulty of exchange — that of extending credits to France. How will America respond to this? Will she answer as she has previously done: "Lafayette, we are here" ? Thus from the misty gray moors and fens of Great Britain ; from the sunny slopes and fragrant vineyards of Italy: from devastated France; from the "Land of the Cherry Blossoms" comes the call to duty. Each breeze that sweeps the ocean — each incoming tide brings the message. Just how America will answer remains to be seen. That she will answer, and, that led by a Higher Power, she will do the right, is the belief of every true patriot. Many are the dangers besetting her pathway. All the difficulties and the prob- lems cannot be settled in a day. No! Nor in many days. Our brothers' keeper? Yes, for such is America's place among the nations. And as the sun of peace ascends higher and ever higher, the prayer that rises from every heart and from every fireside may be expressed in those words so aptly and beautifully uttered by Longfellow: "Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, America, strong and great. Humanity with all its fears. With all its hopes of future years. Is hanging breathless on thy fate!" M. C. D., '20.

You will find here the wisdom of ages; The fruit of well applied years, The sound of the silver drops tinkling 'Tis mu^ic to earthworn ears. Castalia these treasures will show you. Aye these and myriads more. Of wonders perhaps you have heard of In books of fanciful lore. You'll find this to be a true story. If you delve in her treasure store, Castalia will not prove a miser She'll lavish her bounties galore. Now this is a secret I've told you Guard well from a treacherous foe. The beautiful spring was discovered Most twenty long years ago. Since that time Castalia has flourished. Her claims have widened their scope ; Her standard of womanhood noble Has given new life and hope. May the wisdom of ages ne'er fail her ; Her strength, be it ever the same. Doing well each task that's assign'd her. Ne'er fawning for glory or fame! N. H., '19. Page Ninety-seven Pa^e N'uiety-eight Page Ninety-nine "The Palmetto Girls'* Motto: "While I breathe, I hope."

The Young Woman's Christian Association sweetens and beautifies it all. One wakens in the morning with songs from the sweet singer of Israel floating through the halls. Soon many are gathered together for prayer and the day is begun with the "Sun of Righteousness." That upward morning look furnished by the Y. W. C. A. gives light for the day and music by which to march. Many are the college girl's comrades, her classmates, the poet, the mathematician, the historian, the scientist, the musician, the artist — but the Y. W. C. A. deepens her acquaintance with the true Comrade, the One who binds all her loves and friendships into noble and lasting comradeship. Life's callings and life plans are brought very close to the Woman's College girl. The Association is constantly holding up before her the joys and the rewards of a life of true service. Doors are opened wide and the white harvest fields, with their ripened grain are constantly beckoning to her. Splendid has been the response to these calls. Egypt, Korea, China, and Mexico have been made brighter and happier because of the service rendered. All hail the glad day when the Young Woman's Christian Association found en- trance into college halls ! Through her, many a Woman's College girl, once timid and faltering in speech, has become a polished leader, has learned how to pray with and for others. Her Master has become her companion and she can speak to Him as friend to friend. Our Y. W. C. A. has taught many how to live and how to fill nobly their place in the world. Mrs. R. L. Robinson. Page One Hundred Tnuenty -three Tribute From Dr. Green In the picture gallery of my mind hangs a photograph of the Morning Watchers in which the eye of faith sees a picture of rare beauty. They are matriculates in the college of God, sitting at the feet of the invisible but ever-present Teacher and Lord, loving and listening, — living, and learning to live, more abundantly. Like Mary of Bethany, they have chosen "the one thing needful, that good part, which shall not be taken away from them." In the atmosphere of the picture the believing beholder can detect the odor of precious ointment poured over the head of the Savior. Upon them descend and rest the Spirit of God and of Glory. Dr. J. B. Green. Pa^e One Hundred Tiventy-four 'Out of Zion Cometh Perfection of Beauty*' T all times man has been striving for perfection, for beauty. History tells us of the struggles of man in the past to attain this perfection. The good that he saw in others he copied in order that he might be nearer the ideal of beauty of form, color and character. The Greeks, seeking perfection and beauty, erected magnificent temples for the abode of their gods. The re- ligious festivals consisted of the song and dance by gaily dressed maidens, carrying garlands of flowers — all of which was a striving after beauty to propitiate the ill will of their gods. The wise old philosopher, the monks in their cells, the prince on his throne, the little child reaching out its hand for a flower, all strove for perfection of beauty. There is the same desire of man today for beauty. The young girl blossoming in her youth wears her many colored ribbons and airy dresses that she may be beautiful. The home-keeper, busy about her household tasks, strives to make her home as near perfection as possible — a thing of beauty and a joy forever. The poets today, in order to please the human heart, sing of faith, hope and love — the beauteous things. But the world will never be satisfied until it takes into its heart "the perfection that cometh out of Zion." He was perfect in His life, beautiful in His works on earth. He was the "Rose of Sharon," and the "Lily of the Valley." Even His enemies could find no fault in Him. In His daily walks with His fellowmen. He was always the "Good Shepherd" keeping watch over His flock. His friends proclaimed Him King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He was the "Prince of Peace," the "Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world," the one perfect man — the Son of God. In His death and resurrection He attains the supreme height of beauty and per- fection. Thus He is able to satisfy the deep passions of the human heart for beauty. Only as we strive to be more like Him, to surrender our all to Him, are we able to attain the perfection of beauty that satisfies. Being made perfect. He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him. He has promised us that "We shall be perfect, even as He is perfect." "We know that when He shall appear, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." "He is our Hope, our Bright and Morning Star." LiLA M, Bonner, '20. Page One Hundred Twenty-five y.W.C. A^.

Page One Hundred Tiuenty-seven Shakespeare Scenes Page One Hundred Tiuenty-eight Page One Hundred-tiuenty-ntne Atkletics Council President Rose Burns Secretary and Treasurer Roberta Morris Athletics hold a very important place at W. C, and one which the girls enjoy to the utmost. Very few days pass w^hen the courts, both basketball and tennis, are not full, with a waiting list on the side lines. Our regular gymnasium classes, under the direction of Miss Hayes, have given each student an opportunity to develop mind and muscle in military dress, Swedish gymnastics, and outdoor games. Each class has its basketball team, and interclass games have afforded interest for the school and the public, and have shown us the value and necessity for "team-work." Our varsity expects to win many laurels in the games which we are to play this spring. Tennis, tho not stressed as much as basketball, is just as popular and in summer heat and winter cold our tennis devotees are on the courts. Our champions deserve much credit for their skill, endurance and tenacity of purpose. Not the least interesting and beneficial have been our hiking trips. Only those girls who can "walk and not grow weary" are eligible to this club. The Seniors are privileged to enjoy the Playground course, and many a day we see these quondam children playing "Little Miss Muffet" or "London Bridge" or tripping thru the measures of an Irish folk-dance, to the tune of their own laughter. Our students are hale and hearty, and we are all agreed that this is due in no small measure to our Athletic Department.

"Music was the first sound heard in the creation, when the morning stars sang together. It was the first sound heard at the birth of Christ, when the angels san^ together above the plains of Bethlehem. It is the universal language, which appeals to the universal heart of mankind." No life is well rounded or complete without a knowledge and love of music. So our endeavor is to implant in each student a love and appreciation of all that is best and most beautiful in the works of the great composers of both the past and the pres- ent. The time has long since passed when music was regarded merely as a pastime. It has taken its place as one of the fine arts — and none of them offers a broader field for culture. What is there in painting greater than Mozart's Requiem, Haydn's Creation or Gluck's operas? What is there in sculpture grander than Bach's Passion Music or Handel's Messiah? What is there in architecture that surpasses Beethoven's nine symphonies? What is there in Literature to equal Wagner's Music Dramas?

We print below a list of new books which have achieved great fame in the literary world in recent months. It is our opinion that they will be very beneficial to you. "Successful Beating." — Go to midnight feasts and to your friends' rooms without a fast beating heart for fear of being caught. Bertha Ash- worth will tell you how in her new book. "How to be Slender." — Those of you who have superfluous flesh would greatly improve if you would reduce by Henrietta Guyn's new method. Follow the direc- tions in her latest book on the subject and you will obtain the desired results. "How to Play Tennis." — An indispensable book for those who would become proficient in the art of tennis playing. Its author, Margaret Dallas, is of great re- nown on the tennis court and her wide experience will mean sure success if once you read her book. "The Cut System Explained." — On account of the stupidity of the students and the complexity of the cut system there has grown up a great demand for such a book. Accordingly a committee from the Faculty has endeavored to make it clear in their ten volumes on this subject. If all the Freshmen will buy the entire work and study it carefully, it is earnestly hoped that by their Senior 3'ear they will understand it fairly well. "The Mouse Trap." — Maxa Bradley has prepared the book because of the suc- cess of her new methods of catching rats. In this method the only articles needed are a flashlight, mayonnaise bottle, zip-jug and a bowl of water. Read the book and save the expense of buying a trap. The Bulletin Board Wanted — ' Wanted — Wanted- Wanted- Wanted- Wanted- To Let- To Let- Far Sale- Wanted- Wanted- Grace Cashion to keep her tin cans out of the way. Eunice McCelvey. A drum and a few other toys for use in the library. Mrs. Bonner. -A sure cure for freckles. Mattie Sue Witherspoon, -More privileges. Seniors. -You to join the "Anti-Poochee League"; apply Room No. 35. -A dozen baby rattlers. The Sub-Fresh. All the dishes for your midnight feasts. Mrs. Powell. -A pony to D^ Sencetute. Miss Byrd. —The "Library Privilege." Seniors. -A half-dozen brand new words of at least eight syllables. Virginia Reid. -The plumber to come at the right time. Civilla and Henrietta. Page One Hundred Sixty-one Of sense the Faculty had a heap. They always knew when you wished to beat; 'Twas in the unhappy long ago, So now we give them the slip you know. Page One Hundred Sixiy-tivo Examination Questions In the light of the Book of Ruth, what questions do you think a young woman should consider when confronted by a proposal of marriage ? Illustrate by your per- sonal experiences. Repeat from memory the following: (1) Bryant's "Thanatopsis." (2) Emerson's "The Problem." (3) Longfellow's "Evangeline." (4) Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter." Write in French a two thousand word theme on the following subject: "A De- scription of Due West." Parse every word from page thirty to thirty-five in Cicero's "De Senectute." -p+3. Solve : x--)-y- , -- Vin--^n--t-y--t-z- Interpret the whole book of Revelation. Give the third word on page 537 in Act III, Scene I, line 77, of Julius Caesar as given in Longman's Shakespeare and discuss it in full. Faculty Opinion of CKapel News "It was very good considering they were Freshmen." "They must speak louder, I could not hear half that was said." "I noticed several mispronunciations that I would advise them to look up." "The young lady who told of the new law being passed will please look at the next day's paper and read the account of its being repealed." "On the whole they were rather tragic." "It seemed to me that the variety was not very good." "The use of notes detracted very much from the news." "I enjoyed the news." "It was not up to the standard." "Some of the young ladies did not seem very familiar with their news." "They should go further with their news and not just hit the main points." Page One Hundred Sixty-thre< Lila Bonner (to Rose after getting home from prayer-meeting) — "Oh! I saw Leo, Cassiopea and Lyra tonight." Erin Reid — "Will they come to the 'Fresh' reception?" Pearl Dale, in Astronomy class, gave the following formula for finding the mass A^ A^ S+Fee (p): s+Fee (p):: : T' t- Jean Reed (looking in a new mirror) — "Now isn't that pretty." Ruth Pratt — "I am thoroughly disgusted. I cannot get Dr. Robinson to listen to reason." Mary Less — "Whom did you get to do the talking?" Ruth Hayes (at the opening of school) — "Say, 'Freshie,' where are you from?" Miss Jameson — "I may look Fresh but they call me Faculty." In Psychology class Dr. Robinson was discussing the relation between olfactory and gustatory sensations. ! Allie Rush, very enthusiastically, "Oh! Dr. Robinson, if you would stop up your nose would you not get so hungry?" Myrtis Rush (boosting her- home state)- — "Some of the oldest cities in the world are located in Florida." Veola Johnson — "Why didn't you play that part Miss Hayes assigned you today? Because it called for an old maid's make-up?" Louise Barron — "No, I didn't mind that, but I was insulted. She said she se- lected me because I looked natural." Gladys Welborn lost her make-up box and couldn't go to the soiree. She hadn't the face to do it. Rose Burns — "I wonder why the Professor is so mad?" Virginia Galloway — "I gave her an answer which was so good that she could not improve upon it." Page One Hundred Sixty-four Miss Clinkscales (to Des Moines ticket agent) — "Does m)- ticket have to be validated?" Ticket Agent — "When do you leave?" Miss Clinkscales— "Sabbath." Ticket Agent — "When do you leave?" Miss Clinkscales — "Sabbath Day!" Ticket Agent — "Well, when do you leave????" Miss Clinkscales — "Well, in plain terms, I leave Sunday." Miss Stoody (in cooking class) — "Miss Watson, how do you make the college hash?" Margaret — "You don't make it; it just accumulates." Why do Mattie Sue Witherspoon and Betty Morrah like "Bub-bles" so well? Virginia Reid (in Education) — "I could not teach primary work because I could not adapt my vocabulary to the children." Miss Clinkscales — "How much is a guinea worth?" Maxa Bradley — "About five dollars." Hortense Nash (thinking she was speaking of a guinea-pig) — "Oh, I have some at home I am going to sell if you can get that much for them." Miss Sheffield — "Belle, how did you draw that line?" Belle — "I drew it from the center of the circle to the point of attraction (con- tact)." Dr. Green was preaching a sermon on this subject: "^len love darkness rathei than light because their deeds are evil." He was giving several very striking exam- ples to illustrate this fact when someone overheard the following remark: Miss Kelso (whispering to Miss Boyd) — "Wonder why he doesn't illustrate by a midnight feast?" Marguerite Willis (Todd) — "I've confided the secret of our engagement to just three of my dearest friends, John." John — "Just three all told?" Marguerite — "Yes, they all told." Ruth Boggs was contemplating buying a phonograph and accordingly went to a store in Anderson to examine some. A young man who was very attentive waited on her. Upon seeing that she was interested in a certain one, he said: "Now the name of this phonograph is the Belvedere." Ruth answered with a haughty air and in icy tones: "And what is the price of the Belva?" Feme Bell — "Janette is surely a lucky girl. She gets a box of candy almost every day." Margaret Robinson- — -"How is that?" Page One Hundred Sixty-five Feme — "Every time she thanks 'him' for the last box she reminds 'him' that her name is 'Moore.' " Miss Clinkscales — "I want to see you make a B on English this next term." Grace Cashion — "So do I. Let's pull together." Ellen Hunnicutt (at the table) — "Elizabeth, for goodness sake pass the bread. You don't seem to care if no one else gets anv." A Friend (to Elizabeth) — "I suppose you feel yourself sat upon." Eliabeth Mann — "Pshaw, what do I care? Why the last part of her name is 'cutt'." IVIiss Byrd — "Did Caesar's disposition change much during his life?" Elizabeth Johnson — "Well, he had more Gaul when he died than he did when he was born." Miss Sheffield (in Astronomy) — "Does any one wish to ask any question before the class is dismissed ?" Lilla Templeton — "Yes. How did they discover the names of the stars?" Pearl Dale (looking at a picture of the Colorado Canyon) — "I was always crazy to see this so I think I will go to Florida next winter." Isabel Choate — "We have to give an oral talk in English tomorrow." Martha Pressly ( returning from being called down to see the classification com- mittee) — "Those crazy teachers try to make me take everything. I guess they will want me to take the 'Flu' next." Marie Stroud — "Mary Less, you know I just hate to think about leaving this place in June. I have fallen so desperately in love." Mary Less — "Oh, that is a good joke for The Arrow." Marie Stroud — "It's no joke; it's the truth." E" The most unfortunate letter in the alphabet some say, is the letter E — because it is always out of luck, forever in distress (over Chemistry), never in a holiday, and in classes all the time. And, too, it is the beginning of English and the commence- ment of "exams." That's all true. Still it is never in a uniform hat, always in evening dress and always in something to eat. Without it there would be no life, no heaven, no "For- bidden," no wickets and no soirees. It is the center of every enjoyable "event" and is always in love. It is the beginning of excitement and the end of college life.
